I’m a Libra.  I inquire, I analyze, and I draw my own conclusions.  I do this with very little regard to how harsh they may sound to whoever I may happen to share them with. I can’t help it, and it’s gonna get ugly before it gets beautiful.  We’ve been lying to ourselves and each other about this “No Judgement” clause.  We’re letting the deviants of the community hide behind this principle while they tear down the moral fabric of society.  (Was that dramatic enough?  I haven’t had my morning tea yet.) **Sighs** Strugglers with their bad understanding of the bible have memorized one verse as their full mantra to get into heaven.  Their sermons usually goes back and fourth between this one and the one about homosexuality, and that’s about the extent of knowledge taught at struggle bible college.

Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

I’m not one of those people that uses the bible as the principle basis for my battles because I always feel like “What if you’re arguing with someone whose not Christian?”  You’re gonna have to first convert them and then argue the point?  That’s too much, so I argue on facts.  Even if we were to use this bible verse, like any bible verse, its written in prose and up for multiple interpretations.  And you can bet your bottom dollar that a struggler is always gonna pick the option that continues the struggle.  It’s a manipulation to lower our standards.  Wanting to see the best in someone is not judging them, and I’m done keeping quiet while we let lazy, mediocre people who don’t want to grow and develop make us feel guilty for wanting to leave behind a better quality of life for future generations.  They live somewhere in the tween place of the “It takes a community” and “Don’t judge or form an opinion on my behavior”.  Do you see how these cancel each other out?   The struggler can use “it takes a community” when they need you to help clean up the mistakes they made when they were telling you “Don’t judge me!”  

They love to recite the first part of this verse, but skip the most important part about casting your pearls before swine for they will trample them and turn again and rend you (Rend-To cause pain or distress to).  That’s basically saying not to trust them ninjas and throw what’s unholy to the dogs.  How can they ignore such an important aspect to this verse?  Because it directly contradicts their premise that they can do whatever they want and we’re to keep our opinions to ourselves.  In that statement alone you have to form an opinion.  However shady it may come off.

 How can we grow if we don’t set standards?  This really confuses me.  No one ever explains that part of the game to me.   I’m watching kids walking around with tattoos on their faces with dirty dreads and golds looking like Monsters and I’m supposed to pretend that the future of young black males isn’t going to shyt.  Oh, I’m supposed pretend that the thousands of kids I’m seeing like that represent the minority of the black community and I’m making too much out of it even though they’re walking around with three kids each. I guess I’m judging.  Like I said I’m a Libra and I’m always aware that’s how it comes across.  Really I’m just hyper-observant of the world around me.   It’s really no shade.  However, seeing as how much damage can be caused by trusting the wrong people  I find it very Necessary to Judge!  If you, or I for that matter, happen to fall on the wrong side of it…..well that’s just how the gavel falls!
